Background:Objectives: 1.To establish correlation between Amniotic fluid Optical
density (AFOD), gestational age, birth weight and functional maturity of the
newborn.2.To obtain mean AFOD at spontaneous onset of labor. 3.To study the
functional maturity of the newborns, especially in terms of lung maturity by means of
presence or absence of RDS in babies born out of spontaneous labor and in those born
by elective termination.
Materials and Methods: From November 2019 to November 2021, 80 pregnant women
attending Katuri Medical College in Guntur were studied descriptively. We chose 80
singleton pregnant women in spontaneous labour who had a first trimester ultrasound
and estimated crown rump length. AF samples were taken aseptically during
amniotomy and caesarean section after meticulous hysterotomy from the bulging
membranes. Amniotic fluid optical density measured at 650 nm. All the babies' birth
weights were noted. NICU admission, respiratory distress, etc.
Results: we see few babies born even at 35+ wks are fully mature and do not develop
RDS. Buton the other hand few born even after 40 wks are functionally premature and
develop RDS. Some AFODs match the newborn's functional maturity whereas others
don't. AFOD can assess a fetus's functional maturity. At AFOD 1, newborns are
completely functioning. Babies with AFOD 0.4 are immature and have RDS regardless
of gestational age, while those with AFOD 1+ are fully mature. Those with AFOD 1.75+
had postnatal alterations.
Conclusion: Each foetus has its own maturity potential, which occurs at various
gestational ages and birth weights. AFOD 1.05820.36 babies had functional maturity,
brown skin with little vernix, and no respiratory distress. Amniotic fluid OD.

Stunting is a state of the body that is short and so short that it exceeds the SD-2 deficit below the median length or height. Stunting is a public health problem because it is associated with an increased risk of morbidity and death, delayed motor development and stunted mental growth. The general objective of the study was to find out the most dominant determinant factors related to stunting in infants aged 6-24 months at UPT Puskesmas Garum, Blitar Regency. This research is quantitative using a cross sectional research design with a total sample of 151 toddlers. This research was conducted by processing secondary data from the Weigh Month Results of the Garum Health Center UPT and Blitar District Health Office in February 2019. The interview respondents were conducted in November 2019. Variables used include stunting toddlers, nutritional status of pregnant women and exclusive breastfeeding. Data processing and analysis using chi square test (bivariate) and multiple logistic regression (multivariate). The results of the analysis showed that based on the TB / U index, stunting toddlers were 73.9%. Chi square test results show that there is a relationship between stunting toddlers aged 6-24 months based on the history of the nutritional status of pregnant women, the history of the baby's birth weight and the history of exclusive breastfeeding. The results of multivariate analysis showed that the most dominant independent variables related to stunting under five were birth weight after being controlled by the nutritional status variable of pregnant women and exclusive breastfeeding.
